NEH Grant Opportunity

The National Endowment for the Humanities “Small Grants to Libraries” program brings humanities public programming to libraries across the country. This current grant program provides financial support to libraries for the planning, arranging, administering, and promoting of the traveling exhibition, “Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War.”

Deadline for grants: January 30, 2009.

“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” is a collaboration between the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Constitution Center (NCC) and the American Library Association (ALA). The exhibition is based upon an original NCC-developed interactive exhibition of the same name, which will be reformatted into a traveling exhibition for libraries.

The traveling exhibition and tour are funded by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) to the National Constitution Center. This funding opportunity offers successful applicants a $2,500 grant from NEH for exhibition-related expenses and for exhibition programming.

“Lincoln: The Constitution and the Civil War” has been designated as part of NEH’s We the People program, exploring significant events and themes in our nation’s history and culture and advancing knowledge of the principles that define America.
